Parrotheads, your long-awaited dream has come true. No need to escape to the Banana Republics to find a cheeseburger in paradise or waste away in Margaritaville. You don't even need to make changes in latitude to get drunk (and screw) as the first-ever Margaritaville Hotel inspired by the "lyrics and lifestyle" Jimmy Buffett will open this summer in Pensacola Beach, Fla. on the Gulf of Mexico.

There have been many talked-about locations for Margaritaville Hotel before but it looks like this hotel made it the easiest for Jimmy to agree to use his name.

According to a press release, the hotel's owner, Marilyn Hess, President of Little Sabine, Inc., was finalizing the details on this hotel last month when she had the opportunity to meet with Buffett in Panama City Beach at his Margaritaville Cafe there. She liked him, he liked her offer and as Buffett himself says, "I guess you never quite know what is going to happen when you take a road trip east on Highway 98; sometimes things come together for a reason."
